It’s one of the biggest races in history-- the 2008 Presidential Election. From experience to change, the candidates from both political parties are promising a better America. But the question many American’s must face is do they truly understand the issues. Do you know what you are voting for?

Right now there are 15 candidates racing for the White House: 8 democrats, 7 republicans. They all want your vote. But only a select few of them are the right candidates for you.

The race Iowa Caucus is just hours away, New Hampshire Primaries following behind.

We still have 11 months to go, but these candidates are fighting for your vote now! Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and John McCain are just a few names on the ballot, but all have become household names.

When it comes time to vote, do you really know which candidate believes in what? Most of us categorize ourselves as Republican, Democrat, even third party. But it’s more than that; it's our beliefs in key issues that affect our nation.

The USA Today recently released a “Campaign 2008 Candidate Matchup Game.” There are eleven questions with up to four different answers; each one hitting an important issue. From the Iraq war to immigration, even health care, the topics are controversial. As the questions are answered, a candidate rises in the polls. At the end of the quiz you are given three possible choices that most reflect your beliefs. It’s up to you to decide whether they deserve your vote.

Check it out for yourself by clicking the picture below.

For the next eleven months we’ll be your campaign headquarters. We’ll speak with the experts and hammer down the issues.
